Welcome to the forum, Chris. I am acquainted with a woman who researches backgrounds to find Jewish ancestry. She says it can be quite difficult. If you ever want information on it, I could ask her. She is a professional, so she has resources. Many of her clients end up not being Jewish but I'm sure it's interesting anyway, just to know where you're from!

I'm in the process of few DNA tests, just to see what's going on :) However DNA research and genealogy research are different things :)

Let me know how can I find this woman I may become her next client :) !

Hi Chris and welcome!

Sorry for being late to this....

Your story made me smile as your grandmother sounds a lot like my mother. I am born in the Netherlands but my maternal family came there about a hundreds years ago from what was then Poland. She and her sister also always told me things about Judaism and jewish food and stuff, and anecdotes etc. I have picked up quite some yiddish words this way, too, which now helps me to mearn both yiddish and hebrew (well, 'learn' yiddish..as soon as I got the alef bet, I was able to read and understand it Razz ).
The worst part came when not long ago I met this lovely boyfriend who wants to go and live in Israel. When I told my mom about this she all but exploded with joy. Her first reaction: 'oh, Israel!! I always wanted to go there!! I'll visit you there and babysit on my grandchildren!!' (not that fast, mum, not that fast... ;) ). Second reaction: I'll teach you right now how to make kosher chickensoup!
Those are the 'are you actually sure you aren't jewish?' moments ;) They make me smile.
